About Fred and Susie Wellons

The Griggs Home on the Sound was built by the Griggs family, lifelong residents of Waterlily and Currituck County and is owned by their daughter. The decor reflects the rural flavor of soundside Currituck life and the home contains artwork, antiques, books, and mementos that echo the local history of the Griggs family and the area. As you traverse the marsh road that connects mainland Currituck with Churchs Island, you can unwind and begin to experience the soothing atmosphere of quiet, relaxed living.

Why Fred and Susie Wellons chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

The current owners both grew up in Currituck County and value their fond memories of lazy summer days near the water, the wind in the spice trees and the changing colors and features of the Sound during the various seasons. The Outer Banks is a quick ride away for those who want the hustle and bustle of the beach scene. And for those who want a slower pace, the home provides many opportunities to get away but still have fun in a quiet and more relaxed locale.

Very relaxing and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this home and area. It was very comfortable with everything we possibly could need. Lots of rooms and space and well laid out floor plan. We enjoyed the pier and long walks in the morning and had an opportunity to see the Bodie Lighthouse which was very educational and fun. If we're every in the area again we will definitely see if this home is available. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed her stay at this home. It is in a beautiful location and has a private dock. They have a very well-stocked kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms. There were also plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, games and a gas grill. We had to find a place last minute due to the power outage on Hatteras Island and the Wellon's place was a perfect substitute! It was a little farther from the beach than we hoped but the drive was pretty so we didn't mind it at all! The Wellon's were great to respond quickly to any questions we had. We would highly recommend this place! Loved our vacation there!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this home. It was extremely clean and filled with the character of a home, rather than just feeling like an empty house. Very quiet neighbors. We would definitely stay here again.
